I have this very nice Batavus Professional for sale.

Size is 62cm ct x 59cm cc

With a Columbus SL frame in very good condition apart from a few scratches here and there and a little bit of yellowing from what looks like used to be a band on bottle cage on the seattube, otherwise all very nice....

Camapag Athena 12 speed groupset is in great condition and complete including the aero seatpost. There is minor corrosion on the brake bolts as is common with Campag brakes from this era, they have cleaned up pretty good though.

That will be a great ride for the tall blokes under us. Very nice Tel.

How are you so sure it uses SL? Normally 59cm onwards used SP, while the smaller sizes came in SL. Of course there are exceptions. These were made to order frames.

In that case it is very likely to be Columbus SP :D Just made the assumption that as it is a Batavus Pro then it must be SL, thanks for the information.

Really lovely bike, just missed it. Can I ask if the nice leather saddle came from somewhere in particular?

Qubit,

If you're looking for that seat: It is a Batavus seat and it can be had through Mario De Fietsenmaker.
